Paul McCartney is about to release the part animated/part concert The Bruce McMouse Show, featuring footage from his 1972 Red Rose Speedway tour.

The new movie introduces a family of mice living under the stage while Paul McCartney and Wings perform.

Here’s the story:

We see Bruce McMouse regale his children with stories from his past, when son Soily rushes into the room in a whirlwind of excitement announcing that “The Wings” are playing above them. As the concert plays on, Bruce declares to his wife Yvonne that Paul and the band need his help. Bruce then proceeds to venture on stage to offers his services as producer. As the concert progresses, the animated scenes culminate with dozens of animated mice flocking to the venue to see Wings play.

The Bruce McMouse Show was directed by Barry Chattington and produced by Roger Cherrill. The footage was shot in The Netherlands and Germany. McCartney thought up the idea prior to the tour and sketched the characters back then. Eric Wylam took McCartney’s original sketches and designed an entire mouse family. The voices were recorded by Paul and Linda McCartney with Deryck Guyler, Pat Coombs and Derek Nimmo at the end of 1973.

The Bruce McMouse Show was produced between 1972 and 1977 but due to the ever changing Wings line-up the production was shelved … until now.

Screening will take place in cinemas in North America, the UK and Australia on 21 January.
